What is Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is a fat removal surgery including belly fat removal, liposculpture or body sculpture, and/or a general fat reduction operation. Liposuction can target specific areas of your body, including arms, hips, thighs, neck, jaw, lower and/or upper back. The standard lipo surgery consists of a 360 lipo targeting the belt area: the belly, waist and lower back.

Fat removal in Istanbul can also be performed simultaneously with other surgeries to achieve better results. Statistics prove that the liposuction + tummy tuck combination is the most popular for patients looking for a fat reduction operation in Turkey. But how does it work?

How is Liposuction Performed?

Fat removal surgery consists in the aspiration of fat with the use of a cannula or hollow needle connected to a vacuum machine.

The cannula needs to touch the fat tissues to suck them out. Thus, the surgeon creates openings with incisions on the treatment area where liposuction will be performed. The incisions are minor and inconspicuous. Based on the size of the treatment area, one or multiple incisions may be needed.

After the incisions are made, the cannula is inserted through the openings and surgeon reaches to fat tissue formation. By moving the cannula beneath the skin, the surgeon takes out the fat tissue via holes on the cannula’s end into a container.

Lipo surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the size of the treatment area, the excess of fat and specific circumstances of the patient and may be operated using several techniwues. The final results, the duration of the operation and the recovery time will vary depending on the surgical method.

Fat Removal Techniques in Turkey

Turkey is the proud residence of many of the best aesthetic surgeons in the world. Because of the importance of its medical industry, attracting thousands of patients from Europe, Asia, Africa and America, profit margins and government subsidies have allowed clinics and hospitals to make heavy technological investments. Liposuction in Turkey is performed using the latest and most avant-garde techniques:

Traditional Liposuction

Traditional lipo is the standard and cheapest fat reduction operation, allowing for a greater fat reduction. Traditional liposuction comprises a fat removal surgery with the use of an aspiration cannula. Because of the size of the insertion holes (2-3 millimetres wide), no visible scars will be left in the patient’s body.

Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction

VASER Liposuction, also known as Vaser Liposelection, Ultrasound Liposuction or VASER Hi-Def Liposuction, uses the most advanced ultrasound technology to remove the unwanted fat and reshape the body. With the help of ultrasonic waves, the fat deposits can be easily broken down.

Both men and women can take advantahe of VASER Liposuction, it is the best choice for men who want a six-pack ab and for women who want to shape their body by removing the stubborn fait tissues.

With VASER Liposuction device attached to the liposuction cannula, the ultrasound- assisted liposuction reduces the possibility of trauma undermeath the skin. It is because walls of the fat cells are shattered by the ultrasonic waves and fat tissues can be extracted more easily.

Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction, also known as laser lipo, laser-assisted liposuction or SmartLipo, is a procedure consisting in the breaking down of fat cells with a laser before extraction. The main advantage of laser liposuction is that it does not only reduce fat cells but also tightens the skin. Due to its advantage in skin tightening, plastic surgeons generally prefer to proceed with laser liposuction in areas such as the face, neck and jowls. It is also very effective for thinning the waist area.

During the operation, the traditional liposuction cannula is supported with the laser liposuction device. The device has a fiber-optic rod of its own and applied inside the skin. The rod radiates a high intensity laser that creates heat. The heat is used to melt the walls of fat cells and the fat tissues become dissolved. Then, the traditional liposuction cannula is used to remove the melted fat tissues.

Due to its advantage in skin tightening, plastic surgeons generally prefer laser liposuction for face, neck and jowls and where there is loose skin. It is also very effective in thinning the waist area.

Liposuction Cost Turkey

Other than the expertise of surgeons and the technology employed, patients also want to know the liposuction cost in Turkey. An exact price is not easily established, however, as it depends on the techniques used, the number of liposuction areas, the amount of fat to be extracted, the medical condition of the patient, and the surgeon performing the operation.

The average price of liposuction in Turkey is €2900, the minimum price is €2500, and the maximum price is €3290.

In the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, liposuction prices are between €4000 – €6000. However, liposuction cost in Turkey is around 50% lower. The prices change based on the number of liposuction areas.

The reason behind the big difference between Europe and Turkey is the average labour costs for each country. In Turkey, the labour cost is much lower than it is in Europe. This allows more people to have their treatments with affordable prices and meanwhile the plastic surgeons in Turkey gets more and more experienced compared to their European colleagues.

How Much Fat can be Removed by Liposuction in Turkey?

The answer depends on various factors. Potential fat removal varies according to each case. You need to consult your surgeon to know the specifics. Keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. It is a body contouring and reshaping procedure

The maximum fat that can be removed safely is approximately 5 liters. But each patient’s medical condition will determine the amount of fat removal to be operated by liposuction. MCAN Health’s contracted plastic surgeons can sometimes perform a mega liposuction and collect over 10 liters of fat.

Liposculpture in Turkey

While body sculpting might be easy for certain people through gym and diet, others will find it impossible no matter how much exercise or dieting they do. Many factors, such as genetics and metabolism, have to be taken into account. That is why a skinny person might have persistent accumulated fat in areas such as the hips or the abdomen, giving them a not-fat-nor-slim appearance. For cases such as these, fat removal surgery in Turkey is the best possible option. Through liposuction, surgeons can do body sculpting or liposculpture, which is the art and craft of giving patients the appearance of a Greek marble.

Liposuction in Turkey is becoming ever more popular, as it offers cheap liposuction Turkey prices and jaw-dropping results (check out our before and after pictures). Hence why increasingly more patients come to us to get their life-changing surgery.
